|URDU PUBLISHERS SHOULD FORM TRADE UNION
New Delhi: In order to increase the sale of Urdu books, publishers should form trade union and adopt new marketing policies. This was suggested by Shahid Mehdi, Vice Chancellor of Jamia Millia Islamia. He was inaugurating a new branch of Maktaba Jamia Limited at the Sports Complex of the university on 21 April.
Director of National Council for Promotion of Urdu Language (NCPUL), Dr. Muhammad Hamidullah Bhat announced that a display centre would be established at the makataba’s first floor where books of prominent Indian and foreign publishers would be displayed. This will serve dual purpose. The readers will know about the new publications and it will also help publishers sell their books. He further said that the Council would bear expenses for 10000 copies each of the special issue of the maktaba, Kitab Nurna and of Zakir Hussain Institute of Islamic Studies, Jamia. These special issues would be about the history and literary services of the maktaba. Prominent personalities of Urdu were present on this occasion.
